    I saw a brilliant diagram in PC pro showing it to have the best memory usage compared with IE9 and chrome 11 when 5 tabs are open, and then FF using about the same amount of mem when 4 tabs have been closed, whilst the others are cut to just over a 5th.

    As much as I love firefox, reducing all your memory usage elsewhere instead of fixing a world renowned bug was never going to be a winning strategy.

    I use Firefox if I want to use downThemAll! on a slow connection. Else I stick with the Canary Build.

    Guys. I might have to send my laptop for repair/replacement/whatever (:dry:), and before I do, my documents need to be securely deleted but preferably without removing the operating system. What's the best way to go about this?

    Download Eraser, and run the Gutmann algorithm on all the files you want purged.

    IE9 released. Is a massive step from ie7/8.
    Admittedly playing catchup with chrome but hot damn, it plays catchup well. I might even open it occasionally now.
    Chrome is arse. So much for running every tab in a separate process (each one helping itself to far more RAM than I feel its entitled to, I might add) if Flash causes the whole thing to crash and burn I genuinely don't see the hype and, really, do you trust Google these days?

    Sheep.

    Mate, the only browser I know of that doesn't consume memory like an amnesia sufferer is lynx. Have't tried safari recently but...considering it comes from the same company who make itunes, I don't hold much hope.
    I only mentioned chrome because a lot of people seem to obsess over it. I personally like opera best. And I've never quite understood google privacy concerns - what is there to trust? What on earth would interest them? If they want to target ads or look at my calendar, fine but I have decent selective blindness and I doubt they want to stalk me. It doesn't worry me.

    Baa :sheep:

    "Mate" (I don't like that word), I was merely trying to wind up the Chrome lovers.

    Thanks for your insight though.

    A simple single overwrite pass will be more than sufficient. Any more is just overkill.

    Mate, neither do I usually. Blame it on whimsy.

    Also, not sure if serious.

    remove the hard drive, if it's a hardware issue and not the hard drive, they don't need it

    It's more that wild, baseless conspiracy theories are always good for a laugh. That, and my shares in tinfoil producers skyrocket.

    There are people who seriously believe that the 9/11 TV footage of the doomed World Trade Center was faked, in order to cover up what supposedly really happened :facepalm:

    :yes:

    I am massively paranoid, though, so I always go for the most nuclear option I am presented with. The only technology which I guess could recover anything from that would be some kind of magnetic spectrometer or suchlike, but those are mostly theoretical and highly impractical.

    Even Magnetic Force Microscopy cannot recover data that has been overwritten, even only once.
